Low-income children invited for free tooth care in Bellingham

Low-income children may receive free dental care during the 12th annual Whatcom County Free Sealant Day from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 27, at Unity Care NW, 220 Unity St.

Appointments are required for dental services, which will include dental exams, sealants, X-rays and fluoride treatments.

Dentists, hygienists and assistants are volunteering their services. The goal is to help kids prevent dental problems that could affect their adult teeth.

Services are for children up to 18 years old. Cleanings and follow-up care may be offered as needed.

To schedule an appointment for a child, call 360-788-2649 and leave a message.

Mount Baker Dental Hygienists’ Society organized the event, with partners that included Mount Baker District Dental Society and Whatcom County Oral Health Coalition.
